My hubby and I are still working on the kitchen redo and I'm almost ready to post his latest and greatest! Has something to do with this outdated kitchen pic below and a pile of fence boards. Can you guess what it is?

    The counter top is done! It looks great. A painter told me how to do it. If you can buy melamine paint in the States you can save yourself some steps as I've used that before when you could buy it here in Canada. Other than that hre goes. 1. Scuff sand the surface. Use a tack cloth to remove any traces 2. Prime. Benjamin Moore's Fresh Start is the best ever. If there is a huge colour difference - get the primer tinted the same colour as you paint. 3. Sand lightly. Tack. 4. Prime again. When dry sand any lumps or irregularities and tack again. 5. Paint. Use enamel - low or no sheen. Lintless roller. 6. When dry scuff and tack again if any lumps. 7. Paint again. If you were using melamine you'd be done here! 8.Varathane using paint pad. 2 coats needed. Removing the sink can make the job so much easier! For the cost of some paint you can do a decent job and save alot of money, I'm doing another one for them on another bathroom so I think I'll take pictures of the process on that one. No time for this job. Hope this helps
